Geocache Description:

Inspired by the U.K., my own attempt at "SideTracking".


From Wikipedia:

Woodbine Station was opened in 1966 as the eastern terminus of the original segment of Bloor-Danforth line. Although the station was a terminus for two years, it was known that this would be temporary, so it was built with outside platforms rather than a single centre platform that would have conveniently served departures from either track. Disused section of streetcar track on Strathmore Boulevard The Bloor-Danforth subway line replaced the Bloor streetcar line, which ran from Jane Loop to Luttrell Loop, near the present Jane and Victoria Park stations. With the opening of the subway from Keele to Woodbine in 1966, streetcar service was reduced to a short Bloor route from Jane Loop to Keele station, and a Danforth route from Woodbine station to Luttrell Loop. These portions were in turn eliminated when the subway was extended in 1968 to run from Islington to Warden. However, evidence of the temporary loop at Woodbine station for Danforth streetcars still exists: a single disconnected streetcar track runs west from Cedarvale Avenue along Strathmore Boulevard, curving towards the east end of the station, and an irregular wall in the station's mezzanine indicates the former passage to the streetcar platform. The walled-off section of this passage has been partially converted into a staff room and storage area.

Simply a log. Bring a pen.

FTF: the usual suspects...all of them, at once ;)
